what we heard barack obama and joe biden as vice-presidential candidate in 2008. at one point joe biden said in 2007 if then president bush moved forward with an attack on iran, separate from syria in the middle east, joe biden would lead impeachment charges against the president. they have gone a long way from that. what they're saying now, there won't be a vote in congress but that instead what the president will do is consult with congress, this phone call at 6:00 p.m. eastern and other phone calls that have already happened. there's a lot of intense action as the president faces a lot of pressure on this decision whether he will move forward or not. you heard him in the pbs interview saying it could be a shot across the bow against syria. there are military experts say a shot across the bow sounds symbolic. they wand to hear from the president directly. we haven't from him beyond the press interview and cnn interview last week directly from the military what the mission would be. >> and it's growing, bipartisan push for questions, push for answers and consultation with congress and
so. martin o'malley made noise he's interested, joe biden, and kristen gillibrand, elizabeth warren, a lot of buzz, and governor cuomo from new york. a lot of talk. and let me not forgot joe biden. he will call me this afternoon and remind me. it's too early to handicap the race, if hillary clinton gets into the race, there will be a coronation of her because there are so many democrats who last time around supported her, who i think are anxious to see her out there again. >> i read your brother, mayor of san antonio, heading to iowa as well. you accompanying him? >> he's not running for anything. he's headed out to the harkin steak fry in september. >> a lot of tilling of the ground. let me bring this back to you, congressman, because it seems there's a brewing potential civil war inside the republican party. you heard sarah palin last night said she was on the team of rand paul versus chris christie. >> there's a lot of competition out there. with regard to the democratic side, i seem to remember in 2007, this was hillary's nomination. obama may run just to be ready in 2016. the p
on the other side about how this resonates for you in new orleans, but this was vice president joe biden earlier talking about one of them. take a look. >> the proposed rule requires people associated with these kinds of trusts or corporations to go through the same background check that individuals have to do. we'll end this means by which to get these most dangerous weapons to people who are not under the law allowed to own them. >> so mr. mayor, like other urban and major cities, new orleans struggles with the issue of crime. what specifically did the president say that resonated that you can take back and implement for the people of new orleans. >> first of all, the fact that he had the meeting on the day before he was going to commemorate dr. king's address, and simultaneously considering our nation as response, really indicated to us that he's serious about finding every which way we can to curb urban violence, so that spoke volumes. secondly the mayors around the country are working on the same kind of cat trophic problems, what we have said, is -- is a catastrophic event that's o
here. >>> the white house is taking new action on gun control now. have the joe biden announced would executive actions aimed at keeping more military surplus weapons out of the country and getting rid of a system that lets buyers avoid background checks by registering guns to corporations. the vice-president says the moves are simple, straightforward, and common sense, the critics say it won't keep criminals from getting guns. doug is live in washington. explain more about the plan. what is going to happen here? >> trace, it's a way for the administration to circumvent the lack of legislative well for more gun control by doing it through executive action. the first of the two new proposed regulations would end the policy where military weapons sold or handed over to u.s. allies abroad, are then reimported back into the u.s. by private sellers. the second proposed regulation would keep people who cannot pass a background check from circumventing the law by registering certain guns to a corporation or a trust. it would do so by requiring people associated with those trusts to be finger

we realized. we should know joe biden could be having a lasting impact on the language. the vice president punctuating every single one of his sentences with the word "literally." now that practice is gaining acceptance. this week the website motive discovered google added a second definition for literally acknowledging it is obvious used for emphasis or to express strong feeling. miriam webster and cambridge dictionaries added this usage. when it comes to shaping the english language this makes biden a more accomplished vice president than at least one of his predecessors. we should know the final remaining embers of formal gay marriage in california were snuffed out this week. on wednesday the california supreme court denied an effort to revive proposition eight which banned gay marriage in the state and which a federal court deemed unconstitutional, a decision the u.s. supreme court allowed to stand in june. this week challenge came from prop 8's spoerns. with the supreme court, a period on the end of the sentence of protracted legal battle over gay marriage at least in americ

[ applause ] >> president of the united states went to a late night comedy show. for his first ever statement about this increased terror threat. a late night comedy show. >> it's significant enough that we are taking every precaution. we had already done a lot to bolster embassy security around the world. but especially in the middle east, north africa where the threat tends to be highest. >> we're dealing with obama. he love this is stuff. he loves going on this show. sits down on jay leno. he's comfortable there. far more comfortable than he would be in the east room standing up answering questions about what's going on. >> it's a diminishing thing that happened last night. the presidency was di
joe biden. that safety after valve allows the judge without any motion from the prosecution to go below a mandatory minimum if a defendant comes clean about all that he's doing, if his crime has not involved violence, if he has a relatively low criminal history. so we have that, and the third current method for getting below a mandatory minimum sentence is a motion made by the prosecutor in exchange for the defendant's giving information about who his suppliers are, who his customers are, who else is working with him in the drug ganging >> laura murphy, take my final 20 seconds. zell you get the final word. go ahead. >> 94% of the people in prison are there because of plea bargains and most of the people who go to prison do so because they have inadequate counsel. so the attorney general addressed that too, but the attorney general made a great change government policy. the war on drugs is a failure. it leads to huge racial disparities. it leads told expensive overburdened prisons and this is the right move for the federal government. >> everything that you laura murphy and willia
with the war powers act. >> we also hearded from joe biden at the american legion moments ago. listen and respond on the other side. >> there is no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime, the president believes and i believe that those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, women and children should and must be held accountable. >> and chuck, talking about accountability, again, the administration seems reluctantly to have come to the conclusion they have to do this. congress or the politics of it put aside. >> well, i mean, look at the media campaign that's going on here. joy, are this is not necessarily for the american public. this is for the world community. it started with john kerry yesterday. you had chuck hagel sitting down with the bbc. around the world, is there any other more watched english language network in the world than the bbc? there's chuck hagel? then you have the vice president of the united states putting his signature on this. so this clearly, there is a little bit of a concerted effort here to bu
president joe biden, who used a previously scheduled speech before the american legion to make those remarks. at the white house, spokesman jay carney was in day two of setting expectations. >> it is not our policy position to respond to this through regime change. we will take an appropriate response, and we are evaluating, the president and his team are evaluating the options available to them. and the president will make an assessment and an announcement in due time. >> defense secretary chuck hagel made clear that u.s. military forces are ready. >> suffice to say the options are there, the united states department of defense is ready to carry out those options. if that would occur, that would occur also in coordination with our international partners. >> but you're ready to go like that? >> we're ready to go like that. >> meanwhile, closest allies are lining up in agreement. british prime minister david cameron. >> now, of course, any action we take, or others take, would have to be legal, would have to be proportiona proportionate. it would have to be specifically to deter and degrade t

statement on monday followed up by joe biden to the american legion the next day that that was signaling that the white house is ready to go. >> and i think that the president also signal that had in his own words that he is ready to do so, but i think that that is different from actually doing it. and again, i think that the president is going to want to see how much international support he's going to have for it. >> let me ask about iran. what will iran do? there have been a lot of tweets from the new you president as well as warnings that there will be action. would you expect them to take action against israel? >> you always want to be careful with iran. we have to be careful because what we know about their system is very limited. but everything that i'm seeing from them right now suggests that they're unlikely to do something terribly provocative in response. the iranians have their own problems right now. they are under deep international sanctions, they have huge issue, their own internal problems. i don't think they are looking for a fight with the united states over syria. >>
to challenge her, joe biden on the democratic side and who is going to emerge on the republican side and the news media is going to be consumed with that and the press room behind me is going to be thinner and thinner and thinner for those daily bri briefings, less and less interest. so, it's enormous gamble. i can't help but think that the president and his aides looked at this and said, okay. there isn't a lot of support for this. we are getting some blow-back in congress. i still have a hard time thinking they couldn't just go ahead and do what they were going to do and let congress sort it out when they do finally, get around to returning to town. so i can't help come to the conclusion that they think they can win this vote, they think it's going to expose and exploit further divisions within the republican party. but again, getting back to the essential questions of life and death and national security here, for the president to repeatedly say that this is something in the core national interest of the united states and then to put it off for two weeks, you know, militarily, i d

who has been outspoken on that and taken a leadership role, so has joe biden and the president of the united states, you might see the president evoking gay rights, gay marriage tomorrow. right before the election, he went to caesar chavez's grave, and prayed, barack obama and sat with the widow of caesar chavez. yes, we can, coming from the chavez movement. it might be an opportunity to bring the latino movement into the fold and have a talk about the poverty situation, that no one should be afraid of a midnight knock on the door. there's a lot of opportunity for the president. again, reread the second inaugural and i think this will almost be a component speech to the social justice part of what i thought was an excellent second inaugural. >> you know, it will be interesting to see how he ties the issues together. finally, james, i want to get to something i found interesting from "the washington post." they issued a mea culpa, turning out the "post" missed a lot of things in their coverage in 1963. they were forthcoming about this. the front page lead story in 1963 about the
an actual or imminent threat to the nation. that was then. vice president joe biden, when he was a senator back in 2007, in a different context going to war against iran, said this -- i want i want to make it clear, and i made it clear to the president, that if he takes the nation to war in iran without congressional approval, i will make it my business to impeach him. that's a fact. that is a fact. >> that is a fact. he said, that is a fact, if he goes to war against iran without congressional approval, i will call for his impeachment. you know, john, iran is a major supporter of syrian president assad. the iranians say they will retaliate itches that's one of the strategic calculations about how to do the military operation, one of the great skepticism you get in congress, you talk to retired diplomats and generals, can you deliver that blunt force on syria, as the president is plachbing, without causing a domino effect. look at a map, you know the whole gulf region right there. the administration is trying to come up with a plan that punishing syria without having a ripple effect. wolf,
